I have over 10 years of experience in Makeup Artistry for all faces in all mediums - from simple to elaborate, for commercials and films. My first job out of high school was working as a Makeup Artist in Beverly Hills, and I continued to hone my skills through apprenticeships, trainings, and lead jobs throughout Los Angeles, Portland, and Seattle. Now in Missoula, I am thrilled to be "coming home" to Makeup Artistry, as always training in the best application techniques and exploring the top professional products.
I believe what sets me apart as an artist are my diverse abilities - an understanding of appropriate techniques for stage, video, photography, etc., and the artistic ability to create designs - from a basic camera ready "clean" look, to an artificial wound; from aging an actor, to an authentic 1920's Clara Bow. If you can dream it, I can design and apply it.
